Anybody made glass pens with glass nibs? The type where the nib is glass? I have a customer specifically asking for a special pen but with a glass nib.  Undecided Anyone got any tips to make them, contemporary glass has a paragraph on making them but not sure if anyone here has any practical experience of doing them and any tips?Huh

I've seen Ray Skene do it, but it was several years ago. He was demoing. I would ask him if I were you.

Hi,
   We used to make them but they would only hold enough ink for one or two short words .

Best wishes ,

I've tried making the shape with a star mould and with laying down narrow stringers over a cone but have had not had total success with either.  They do write a bit, just don't hold the ink for very long.  There are some great tips at this site.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242948&highlight=glass+pens
